Metro K-12 teachers attending a Sept. 14 workshop sponsored by Vanderbilt’s Center for Latin American and Iberian Studies can try dancing the tango with instructors from Tango Nashville. In addition, the participating teachers will explore the history of the tango and the Latin American culture surrounding the popular dance. The goal is to provide a variety of hands-on, dynamic resources for instructors working with students of a variety of ages and abilities on topics related to Latin America. The Center for Latin American and Iberian Studies has a strong outreach program for local schools and the Nashville community, thanks to a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
